EMSB Education Career Fair is set for Oct. 19 and 20
More than 2,000 Secondary V students will attend the 22nd annual English Montreal School Board Career Fair on Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20 at St. Pius X Career Centre in Ahuntsic (9955 Papineau). Jack Dym of Pipe and Piling Supplies Ltd is the event’s title sponsor.
Several on-air personalities from the media will be on hand to talk to students about careers in this field and serve as guest emcees.
This will mark the first in-person Education and Career Fair since 2019. The previous two editions were presented virtually.
From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 19, the Education and Career Fair will be open to the community-at-large. Organizers note that this is a good opportunity for parents to attend with their children (Grades 9, 10 and 11) as they look towards post-secondary education options in a one-stop shopping experience. There is no charge and free parking.
Mario Argiropoulos from EMSB Adult Education and Vocational Services is the Education and Career Fair chair. The Student Services and AEVS Departments of the EMSB coordinate this program. The main objective is to provide students with an in-depth exposure to the various educational opportunities available to them. All students will take part in a brief general information session in the St. Pius X Career Centre auditorium. Students will then have the chance to visit the various exhibition/information booths staffed by representatives from English vocational training centres, adult education centres, CEGEPS, universities and private colleges.
